Is your quilt "squared"? To make sure, lay your quilt on the floor or a large enough surface that your quilt will lie flat. With a large tape measure, starting in the top right corner and going diagonally to the bottom left corner take the measurement. Now do the same from the top left to the bottom right. If these two measurements are the same your quilt is "squared". This trick was learnt from a husband who does a lot of woodworking – amazing where you get information from, isn't it?
